So there's this little coffeehouse near me that I, driving past one night, realized they have an open mic.

I have no band so it would just be me and my guitar. But I was hoping on creating some backing tracks on this new program that I have and just plug my iPod into the PA system.


This would be my first gig, if you can call it a gig.

So would this be a good idea to be alone on stage for my first gig?

I haven't committed to anything yet, just an idea right now.

If your comfortable with it, and you think it will work, then go for it.

why not just play your guitar and sing like all us other lowly buskers?

since you hate obama, i would say no it is not a good idea because you probably suck as a person...

in all seriousness though, it depends on your comfort level. if you are fine with everything being on your shoulders then go for it, you need experience if you want to get serious.

you'd probably be better off without a backing track if you've never played a gig before. Think of it this way: if you mess up, a drummer can accommodate that; a backing track will just keep playing.

Not comfortable singing, plus I can't sing and play at the same time.

Just do it with your guitar. It's better that way. I've tried the backing track thing and it doesn't sound good.

Its not a gig until you get paid

I'm hearing a steady *thump thump* from the people above me and I need some porno grooves to play on my bass to give them some background music. Any ideas?
